See The Rings

April 16, 2021

See the rings
The rings of life
See them circle
Bringing
Embracing life
Different colours
Different lines
Going round
Since
The beginning of time.

Only If I Could

Only If I Could ~ Photo by Patrice

Only if I could see you 
feel your presence 

Only if I could keep you 
always near 

This  I would do 
only if I could 

Could be forever 
with you.

I Hold You Close

I Hold You Close - Photo by Patrice

I hold you close 
I keep you
tight to my chest 
No one will come
between our love 
you are the one 
the best. 

Our love will live 
into tomorrow 
all the days ahead 
for you are my love 
the one I live for 
long for 
forgetting all the rest.

I Let Them Go

I Let Them Go ~ Photo by Patrice

I let them go 
He held me close 
No words were said 
It was as if 
He was a ghost. 

Tomorrow may be 
A different day 
I hope 
He’s with me 
Keeping all
That’s bad at bay.

Old Lady

Me ~ Photo by Patrice

When I look in the mirror
I see an old lady
Starring at me.

I agonize over
Whether she
Really likes me.

Does she think
Me silly
I can’t see.

But so want to tell her
I’m happy
She got to be an old lady
Just like me!

Why Haven’t You

April 8, 2021

Why haven’t you held me close 
Protected me from the worst, the gross 
Why haven’t you? 

Why haven’t you heard my pleas 
My calls for help 
Why haven’t you? 

Why haven’t you seen the worst 
And fell upon the evil that has me cursed 
Why haven’t you? 

Why haven’t you seen, heard, felt or been
The one I need 
Why haven’t you? 

Why haven’t you?

Another Day Not The Same

Zee Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Another day not the same
A cloud, a veil
Lifted
Now I see my terrain.

All is clear
My purpose, my direction
My refrain.

I sing and live
What gives me satisfaction
Gives me
A life to live.

Holding On

March 22, 2021
Last used March 22/21

Holding on
Holding safe 
Letting go
Not to replace love
With hate. 

It may be
Tomorrow 
It may be
Later today 
I will see the world 
In a wondrous
New way.

Sunset

March 19, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Sun goes down
Into the evening sky
Leaving the moon to reflect it’s light
Into the water deep and blue
Turning it golden
Blood red too.

All is quiet in the evening sky
Birds ponder the reason why
As the sun now sinks
Beneath the ocean blue
Refreshing itself in waters deep, dark
Purely quiet too
~ Patrice

Wouldn’t It Be Nice

March 12, 2021

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Nurse Shark ~ Photo by Patrice

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world laughed
No one cried and in the sea
No fish, no lives
No one
No one died.

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world turned
Looking at itself
Making no excuses, no lies
Just told the truth
With open-hearted sighs.

Wouldn’t it be nice
If the world alone
Gave all the happiness
Needed to survive
Holding everyone in a grasp
So tender, so alive.

Wouldn’t it be nice, Wouldn’t it be nice
~ Patrice
